Having been ensconced in the studio recording material for their new English language album due 2019 via Universal Music, Thailand’s leading alt-rock band Slot Machine are pleased to announce details of a brand new visual for ‘Know Your Enemy’, produced by Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons) and was recorded at the legendary Karma Sound Studios in Thailand.
They say: “The inspiration behind “Know Your Enemy” is about our internal limitations, We can only change the world , through changing ourselves, through the journey of self awareness. With this in mind it is not about creating conflict with each other, just because we are different. Music is about sharing ourselves with people from all around the world. Peace, Love and Understanding, this comes from within”.
A household name in Thailand, Slot Machine, with 6 albums already to their credit, created a buzz worldwide with the 2016 release of their first all English album ‘Spin The World’, produced by Grammy Award winning producer, Steve Lillywhite. Historically, the band released their self-titled debut album in 2004, featuring hit single, ‘Ro’ (I’m Waiting For You). Slot Machine followed up with ‘Mutation’ in 2006, produced by Scott Moffatt, former member of Canadian band The Moffatts. Scott added a new element to their music, and the album produced two megahits: ‘Phan’ (Yesterday) and ‘Kham Sutthai’ (Song for U).
Shortly after the release of their second album, Slot Machine were chosen as the opening act for Linkin Park’s Bangkok concert, in front of 30,000 fans. Slot Machine embarked on their first UK tour in October 2015. They performed in Bristol, Brighton and London, where they were embraced by both Thai & English audiences. The band also toured Australia during this time.
In 2018, the band have recorded exciting new music with US based producers, Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, The Envy Corps) & Justin Stanley (Beck, Prince, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Snoop Dogg and many more) as well as performing internationally in Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea & Taiwan.
Their new single “Know Your Enemy”, will be featured in Garena Games’ ROV World Championship event, to be held in Bangkok December 15/16 and the band have also been nominated as the Best South East Asian Act for the prestigious MTV EMA 2018 Awards.
